Time: 16:05 Cairo local time | 9:05 ET Canada-USA
Venue: Old Trafford
Referee: Michael Oliver
One of the greatest rivalries in world soccer arrives on Sunday as Manchester United hosts Liverpool in a big-time Premier League showdown. United (15-6-5) enters the game in fourth place with 51 points, looking to hold off Arsenal and Chelsea for that final Champions League spot. Meanwhile, Liverpool (20-5-1) is level on points with Manchester City with one matchless. This is the chance for them to get back into first place with just a draw, while a win will put them three points clear.
Manchester United: The win over Chelsea was a great bounce-back following the loss to PSG in the Champions League. It reconfirmed the quality of this team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but now here’s a big test. As rivals, this is an opportunity for Solskjaer to make a case as to why he should get the full-time coaching job.
Liverpool: Liverpool has some injuries at the back and is coming off the match against Bayern Munich in the Champions League. While this will be a tricky test, United is coming off an emotional 2-0 win at Chelsea on Monday. Both teams will probably feel a bit tired entering this one, and that bodes better for Liverpool due to having more depth than the Red Devils.
Manchester United: David de Gea; A. Young, C. Smalling, V. Lindelof, L. Shaw, Mata, Ander Herrera, P. Pogba, S. McTominay, R. Lukaku, M. Rashford
Liverpool: Alisson; J. Matip, V. van Dijk, A. Robertson, J. Milner, G. Wijnaldum, J. Henderson, Fabinho, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, S. Mane
